These are the best damn nachos I’ve ever tasted – seriously! And I’ve ate a lot of nachos in my 24 years of living – vegan & non vegan.

Normally when I make nachos I use soya mince and supermarket fake cheese, but lately I’m trying to eat less processed food and more healthy whole food. So I decided to make these nachos with a homemade cheese sauce & black beans instead. And needless to say, they were banging!

I usually make a big batch of the cheese sauce at the start of the week which costs about £0.50 to make and only takes around 30 minutes of your time. I love it because it’s so versatile & it only takes a few minutes to heat up. I mostly use it for nachos & mac & cheese and it lasts me the whole week – which is brill for lazy vegans like me!

I think the best way to cook nachos is to make sure the nachos are crispy, load it with yummy toppings & smother it with sauces. Trust me – it’s filling, it’s tasty & it’s actually kinda healthy! And vegans are just supposed to eat grass ey?
